Many threads on this site go off topic for a while and then come back.

In all fairness .. some just wander off the plot completely ;)



So that's where the phrase 'losing the plot' comes from  :lol:

It's what makes these forums the most successful veg gardening forums in the world (probably).  If any member has a problem with this please send me a complaint written on a £10 note  ;)

You need to upgrade your wood aunty!, nowadays complaints should be submitted on the back of a £50 note .... no more than 10 words per note ;)

These forums aren't perfect, but they get by as well as most of life when it's left to sensibility ;)

but according to Austen you need the SENSE to go with it, and sometimes that's lacking :lol: :tongue2: :wacko:

oo er - sorry if I upset anyone with the earwig question. I just thought it made sense to ask on the thread I was Reading about sweetcorn as that is how conversation works but maybe forums are different.

It didn't upset me and none of the other forum mods said anything about it either, so don't worry.

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

I like reading about the same thing in one thread and I don't mind if people want to ask other questions in a topic I started (not that I start many because most of my questions are answered in the questions others ask)  :D

I don't think you have too much to worry about, I am more concerned about teh local rat population stripping the plants to be honest as I ahven't had time to net them yet!

Similar thing going on here, the strange thing though is that in one block of the same variety and conditions (none shaded etc), the tallest is about 5 and a half feet, the majority are 4/5 feet.

Then there are a half dozen or so that are tiny, 2ft at most, these ones seem to have 3+ stems, cobs/tassles but no male flower and are randomly spaced throughout the block  ???

All interesting stuff, these ones are making last yrs crop seem really boring  8)

I think it was me that did the upsetting, matey. Apologies for the hijack, I really didn't think it was a problem.  :blush:

As the original posters question had been answered with a few possible causes then adding a few more queries on the same subject seems sensible.

Better to have three sweetcorn related questions in a single thread about sweetcorn than having three separate threads surely?
